Where In The World Is WILL?

I get emails occasionally these days from readers who are wondering where I am these days, why I am not posting much (if at all), when I am coming back, and all that good stuff.

Well, I am doing not-so-top-secret GOP political stuff, in 12 states, until the election. Although it's not all that top-secret, I still can't really blog about it. I can still blog about charts and graphs. I can still do all kinds of classic WILLisms.com type stuff.

But I unfortunately cannot blog about specifics regarding my job, my travels, and so on. And I rarely have the time or energy left after all the meetings and travel and politicking to compose the sorts of fact-based, research-intensive posts with which I like to have my name associated.

I will say this: I am enjoying being all over these 12 states. I am enjoying seeing the United States. Sometimes it's weird and disorienting waking up in the morning and-- for a few milliseconds-- wondering where the heck I am. At times, the places and days and people begin to blend together. But it's fun and rewarding work.

Here's my plan from now until November: I will try to find the time to make one or two posts per week. Ken will take over a couple of the weekly features, in addition to his essays and such. I would also like to add a chart/graph/numbers type of blogger. Know anyone who fits that bill?

And some exciting news: the illustrious and prolific Jay Tea, of Wizbang blog, has offered his unique and original perspective for the near term to keep the site fresh and stirred up. Sweet.

Glad to hear all is well and business is good! I have especially missed seeing your graph on the recent budget announcement (tax cuts = long term larger economic growth = larger tax receipts). Wish the NY Times or WP could write the story correctly without the 10 negative comments for the positive.

I think your current bench is doing a good job. Few bloggers are able to do the succinct graphs you provide your readers.

Kind regards,

Bill Rice

I think now that it's in the open that Will is working for the GOP, we can all rest assured the Reps won't lose either house this fall.

Bad ass.

I like to think that Will is really on a double-secret mission infiltrating the DNC, whispering really bad advice into Howard Dean's ear.

Like, "hey Howard, when you go on Meet The Press, just be yourself! Everyone will love it."

I have to call BS on Will, i'm sorry. But that statement looks like it was written under duress. I konw exactly where will is! He is tied up and blindfolded and forced under gunpoint not to post anymore. He is in Lesters basement you guys! Our friendly troll has kidnapped him!

Who's taking care of Heidi? She can always come hang out with Kaci and Kona if need be.

Good luck in your venture. As for this Republican, please let the powers that be know that: 1) I'll never vote for Mccain, 2) I won't vote at all unless the Repubs get serious about immigration. Perhaps neither point is logical, but that's the way I fell, and that's the way an awful lot of conservatives around me feel.

Posted by: Da Coyote at July 13, 2006 10:52 AM

Oops...."feel", not "fell". Perhaps "...the way I fell...." was an appropriate Freudian slip. (Now, did I even spell his name correctly?)

Posted by: Da Coyote at July 13, 2006 10:54 AM

I don't understand why Republicans even worry about campaigning. I mean, I thought they just "stole" elections. Why the hell can't they just steal this one too?

Maybe Will is working on the super-secret project of how to convince Americans that there are no voting irregularities when "Exit Polls" do not match the voting results or when the pre-election CBS News opinion poll reflects some kind of alternate reality in which John Kerry and the Democrats always win. When the Neo-Con Facists finally take over, I hope will remembers me and keeps me out of the concentration camps and away from the waterboarding.

Sorry, but since Lester has not commented and we haven't gotten any trolls from Daily Kos, I used my telepathic ability and complex Democratic Mind Processing algorythms to predict what they would say. Basically a giant hat with the following key terms:

Hitler, Haliburton, Neo-con Facist, Right Wing, Religious Zealot, Bigot, Stole the election, Karl Rove Frog Marching

Have fun.

I like to think Will is on double secret probation...
